Iggy Pop.jpg

Back in the mists of time, in March 1978, a group of us headed off to West Runton Pavilion to see Iggy Pop.  For those of you not from Norfolk, West Runton is a small seaside town in  North Norfolk.  In the 70’s, if a band came to Norfolk then it was either to the University of East Anglia in Norwich, for which you needed a student union card to attend, or to the Pavilion at West Runton.  One of us liberated a life size cut out of Iggy from Robin’s Records in Norwich that took up residence in our sixth form common room.  This sculpture by Stephen Haines, in this year’s summer exhibition at the Royal Academy, made me feel 16 again!
